Default My pc is HOT!

I installed speedfan and noticed both of my GPU and Processor were 61'C and i think that is a little bit too hot. It is blowing out warm air out the back... What is the problem?



3 case fans 1x 120 Front
1x 120 back
1x 80 mm side

The problem is speedfan. I don't trust any temperature monitoring software by itself. Use Everest and HW Monitor to get some other readings. I've heard speedfan is off quite a bit.

your GPU is normal as for that temperature.

Oh sorry. I posted yet I forgot to analyze the reported temperature. Like Teny stated, 61C is quite commong for GPUs. When I'm gaming (WC3) mine usually goes to 63C. On idle it starts at 50C and slowly increases depending on how long the computer is on. It levels at 59C (53C right now). The processor temperature is too hot for idle. If you don't have it OC'ed I guarantee you its faulty reading.

Use PC Wizard to monitor the temperatures.

I find it a lot more accurate and you don't have to set it up prior to using it.

I can't tell what kind of cpu you have, but this is a cool little intel program...
